to protect children
in South Sudan
3.2 million children have been affected by the crisis inside South Sudan
Famine has been declared in some parts of South Sudan, affecting 100,000 people. Millions more are experiencing emergency levels of food insecurity, just one step away from famine, and more than 250,000 children are suffering from severe malnutrition.
Conflict in South Sudan is having a devastating impact on children
War, drought and economic collapse has placed the lives of an entire generation of children in South Sudan in danger.
Since the conflict started almost three years ago, more than 400,000 children have been forced out of school and 17,000 are reported as being used by armed group in the conflict. Children have been separated from their families and are increasingly vulnerable to violence and abuse.

How will my donation help children?
Unicef is doing everything it can to deliver life-saving aid like food and clean water to children and families affected by the fighting. We’re also working hard to keep children safe and reunite them with their families. In 2015, we helped treat more than 130,000 children for severe malnutrition, and provided critical psychosocial support to more than 365,000 children affected by the crisis. But we simply don’t have enough funds to reach every child and the situation is getting worse every day.
You can help us reach more children in South Sudan. Please donate now.
For the first 12 months monthly donations made to this appeal will go to children affected by the South Sudan conflict. After that they will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund, helping children caught in wars and disasters around the world. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed Unicef’s funding requirements for this appeal, your one off or monthly gift will also go to Unicef’s Children’s Emergency Fund.
